Psychedelic Angel

It’s understandable
to doubt
in a world of pain! darkness! disappointment!
I can only pray the scales will level out

I try
to understand,
Psychedelic angel,
take my hand!
Nothing will stop
a phoenix,
rising from the sand.

Let us try to
go the other way
I sometimes try to pass as nothing
but my dreams give me away

Psychedelic angel,
come to me!
I’ll work it out
love is not the enemy.
The sun is cresting over metallic dunes again
and I pray, one day
the scales will level out.
